Dani Alves Detained In Spain For Suspected Sexual Assault

Dani Alves, a defender for Brazil, was detained on Friday in Spain on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman in a Barcelona nightclub in December, according to police.

According to a representative of Catalonia’s regional police force, the Mossos d’Esquadra, the 39-year-old player was summoned to a police station in Barcelona where he was “taken into prison” and will now be interrogated by a court.
On January 2, a woman complained to the Catalan police that Alves had touched her impermissibly, according to the authorities.

The alleged sexual assault took place at a popular Barcelona nightclub overnight December 30-31, according to Spanish media reports.
The player was accused of putting his hands down the woman’s pants, according to the reports.
Alves, 39, has confirmed he was at the night club at the time but has denied any wrongdoing, telling private Spanish television Antena 3 earlier this month that he has “never seen” the woman before.

“I was there, at that place, with more people having fun. Everybody knows I love to dance. Having a good time but without invading the space of others,” the former Barcelona and Juventus player added.
Alves, who now plays for Mexican side Pumas UNAM, was in Barcelona on holiday following his participation at the World Cup with Brazil in Qatar.
